So many people were killed when Europeans first conquered and settled the Americas that a large number of acres of cropland was allowed to revert to forest, pulling that much CO2 from the atmosphere that temperatures dropped. The Maunder Minimum didn't do dick.

Or so a new study from University College London, UK. says.

America colonisation ‘cooled climate’

Makes more sense to me. The article lists the reasoning and where the data comes from for those who want to dig.

Here's the actual paper. https://reader.elsevier.com/reader/...8F50F440DD34DE1E140401D9F53DF4031164E61BB0238

If that is the case the most important priority to save the planet from global warming should be population control and reduction.

Not True, the CO2 is the highest known to exist. but this is the 5 warmest (4 previous were warmer) major warming cycles in the last 400,000 years. you have to go back to 550,000 years to find a cooler major warming cycle, proving CO2 IS NOT the major factor in warming.

The Sun and Water Vapor are the 2 driving forces. once the cooling starts the water vapor becomes Ice. The Ice freezes, the melts the next warming cycle.

the Modern Global warming began ~10,000 years ago.. but Hoax mongers want to focus only on the last 160 years. (Post 1881), and want the lemmings to ignore the last ~9,840 years of warming.
Any sources for your findings here? Or do I have to repost the interactive graphs kept by the Scripps Oceanic Institute from the Mauna Loa Observatory data?

NO, end capitalism first! Because global population is not going to increase as global birthrates have been slowing down for decades now, while capitalism demands exponential economic growth and energy usage to keep feeding the beast!
